Portobello Hero

Sliced flavorful mushrooms and red and green bell peppers accented with crumbled goat cheese work well as a sandwich filling, and their flavors are unified by the addition of garlic-basil pesto. A tossed green salad and fresh fruit round out the meal.

SERVING

Ingredients

  • 2 portobello mushroom caps, about 5 oz. total
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 2 kaiser rolls
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. pesto
  • 4 oz. crumbled goat cheese
  • 4 large red leaf lettuce leaves

Preparation

  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Scrape away black gills from mushroom caps, and slice caps into thin strips. Set aside. Heat oil in a large skillet, and sauté strips for about 5 minutes, or just until slightly wilted.Add red and green bell pepper strips, and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, slice rolls almost completely in half widthwise, spread bottom half of each roll with 1/2 tablespoon pesto and toast under broiler for about 2 minutes, or until just browned. Remove from heat, and place opened rolls on individual plates. Layer 2 lettuce leaves on each bottom roll.
  4. Add remaining pesto and goat cheese to skillet, and stir until cheese melts and coats mushroom and pepper strips, about 3 minutes more. Remove from heat, spoon equal portions of mixture onto one side of each roll and serve.
